Trump need to communicate with minorities

From the Right / Star Parker /

Some polls in recent weeks have provided an encouraging picture for President Donald Trump of strengthening support among black voters.

I like these kinds of reports. But I wonder how much of reality they are really capturing.

The Wall Street Journal, for instance, reports on new polling from the Kaiser Family Foundation showing outsize ...Read more

Schiff resorts to an abusive prosecutor's trick to frame Trump

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

House Democrats are stampeding to impeach President Donald Trump without evidence of any crime. On Tuesday, they announced two articles of impeachment based on a new, rigged definition of an impeachable offense. They claim Congress can impeach a president who "ignored and injured the interests of the Nation" even if he hasn't violated any law.

Congress and the media are both ignoring the forgotten debt

From the Right / John Stossel /

Congress and the media obsess endlessly over whether President Donald Trump should be impeached.

Both ignore $23 trillion of bigger problems.

That's how deep in debt the federal government is now, and because they keep spending much more than they could ever hope to collect in taxes, that number will only go up. It's increasing by $1 trillion ...Read more

House Democrats don't want to know the truth

In April 2014, then-President Barack Obama signed a law authorizing loan guarantees for Ukraine.

That same month, then-Vice President Joe Biden went to Ukraine and made these points: The Obama administration was going to guarantee $1 billion in loans to Ukraine, and the United States was going to help Ukraine develop its energy industry.

"Just...Read more

Will Democrats accept the results of the 2020 elections?

From the Right / Ben Shapiro /

In the lead-up to the 2016 election, Democrats fretted openly about the possibility that Donald Trump, being a rather poor sport, might refuse to acknowledge an election loss. To be fair, Trump refused to state that he would accept election results, depending on the circumstances: "I'll keep you in suspense," he stated in his Oct. 19, ...Read more

Will you join me in defending American First?

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

Here is a chilling case of sanctuary chickens coming home to roost.

Upon being convicted of armed robbery, kidnapping, home invasion and the brutal murders of two doctors on Tuesday, African criminal Bampumim Teixeira taunted the Massachusetts prosecutor who won the case and vowed to rape his wife. "You better hope I don't get out of jail," ...Read more

New op-ed makes it clear how the media smeared Jewell

Over the last few years, journalists have responded to accusations of "fake news" with arrogant proclamations that they are the misunderstood Guardians of Truth and Providers of Fact. But not every news story is a perfectly baked slice of Facts or Truth. Sometimes reporters merely recount what they heard but what they were told was wrong.

We ...Read more

Pelosi has situational religious ethics

SAN DIEGO -- At the intersection of religion and immigration, you'll find the bogus sanctimony of St. Nancy of San Francisco.

Recently, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was outraged when James Rosen of Sinclair Broadcasting did something that members of the media typically don't do with Democrats: He challenged her. In questioning her motives for ...Read more

Article points out morality of free markets

From the Right / Walter Williams /

Dr. Richard Ebeling, professor of economics at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, and my longtime friend and colleague, has written an important article, "Business Ethics and Morality of the Marketplace," appearing in the American Institute for Economic Research. It's importance and timeliness is enhanced by so many of America'...Read more

European leaders meet to take the future into their own hands

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

PARIS -- As France headed into a second week of mass transit paralysis due to a nationwide public-sector strike over proposed pension reforms, tensions ramped up among Parisian commuters, and protesters braced for more flying tear gas canisters as they prepared for another day clashing with riot police in the streets of Paris. Amid all of this ...Read more

He makes a village

From the Right / Salena Zito /

SAVANNAH, Georgia -- Tyler Merritt has taken the saying "It takes a village to raise a child" and turned it a bit sideways. He's building a village, literally, to allow adults to raise themselves up. His village is a stabilizing rail, or a steppingstone to a better life.

Merritt, a former Army captain and special operations air mission ...Read more

Much ado over not very much

A history professor I once studied under tended to offer weary responses to technical and highly dispensable questions of the sort that arise in weary seminars. To wit: "But what's that got to do with the price of eggs?" Or, more pointedly sometimes, "the price of eggs in Arkansas?"

I thought of this aptly characterized boredom threshold as I ...Read more

Congress must stop subsidizing wealthy car buyers

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Why are Democrats Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi teaming together to lobby for a tax bill that would provide about 80% of the benefits to Americans who make more than $100,000 a year?

Schumer and Pelosi are the ones who, for the last two years, have been railing against income inequality and tax cuts for the rich, but now ...Read more

What is Judaism?

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

If you've ever wondered what Judaism is, here is a list of its principal beliefs. This is not not an official list, but these beliefs have been widely held by religious Jews for thousands of years.

As for my background, I have taught Judaism all of my life including two years as a member of the Brooklyn College Department of Judaic Studies; ...Read more

We live in an era of ill will to men (and women)

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Apologies to Elton John, but in Washington and throughout so much of the country, can you feel the hate tonight?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked by reporter James Rosen if she hates President Trump. She responded with an "if looks could kill" fire in her eyes and denounced Rosen for his question while claiming she doesn't hate Trump.

Is it jaw-jaw or war with Iran?

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

"Jaw-jaw is better than war-war," is attributed, wrongly, say some historians, to Winston Churchill. Still, the words lately came to mind.

While last week ended with a hopeful U.S.-Iranian prisoner exchange that was hailed by President Donald Trump -- "Thank you to Iran for a very fair negotiation. See, we can make a deal together" -- a few ...Read more

This is an election too important to be left to voters

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

The Democrats believe that the 2020 election is too important to be left to the voters.

It's obvious that President Donald Trump withheld defense aid to Ukraine to pressure its president to commit to the investigations that he wanted, an improper use of his power that should rightly be the focus of congressional investigation and hearings.

Here we are, with an election less than a year away

From the Right / John Kass /

With American unemployment numbers at a 50-year low, with people working and with money in their pockets, stubborn House Democrats rush forward on their path toward madness.

They insist on impeaching President Donald Trump, though they have no hope of securing a conviction in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Are House Democrats principled ...Read more

Trump just can't help himself

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

LONDON -- On Wednesday, President Donald Trump abruptly left a NATO summit near London and canceled a scheduled press conference after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was caught on camera amusing fellow big shots as he marveled at Trump's long-winded sessions with the press. Trump exhibited a classic case of being able to dish it out but ...Read more

O'Malley walks into a bar -- and takes a shot at Trump official

SAN DIEGO -- Let's hear it for public shaming.

If you follow the after-hours antics of politicians, you may have heard that former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley recently tore into Ken Cuccinelli at an Irish bar in Washington.

The Trump administration's acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security went to The Dubliner for a Guinness, he later ...Read more
